Teach With Us!

The #1 job for lovers of music and children


A classroom of children and their teachers, happily engaged in musical learning and activities. There is singing, moving, laughter — and after the last song, you lift your basket of instruments and head to the next room, where it all happens again.

Who are you? We are Golden Acorn Music. we specialize in bringing high-quality music programs to Bay Area preschools and libraries.

What do you do? Our teachers drive between local schools, delivering our weekly curriculum directly to the children and teachers.

Okay. What will I be doing? As a teacher with us, it all comes down to you: From the moment you arrive at a school to the moment you leave, you are on the floor. You'll engage with the children, of course, but you'll also collaborate with the adults in the school.

Cool! This sounds pretty serious... and fun...? You're right! We take our work seriously, but we never lose sight of the fact that play and fun are essential to children's healthy growth.

So, jump to it! Join our young, fast-growing organization!
